...Okay. I just received 3DS MAX 7 in the mail, (Thank you SO much, zach.) But... I have no idea how to use the program itself. I have no clue how to get a 3D... ANYTHING started, and my internet is way too dead for any tutorials at the moment... So... Anybody willing to help me out here? I'm trying to figure it out as we speak, and I'm feeling infinately stupid doing so.:uhoh:
Well.. do you want to make saber hilts, gun weapons etc. or player models?
If you say which (or all) I can point out some nice tutorials for you :)

Taken from the master sticky, by the way. There are several tutorials to get you started.
Start simple, it takes practice and time to get better.
I'd take any assistance I could possibly get. I wish to get started on modeling a character for JKA, and tweaking a ship model. I want to make General Jaxun, and his ship, The Saber. However, with 3DS MAX 7, I do not believe I can weight stuff for JKA... So someone may have to weight for me.
No you can, that was the last version I used back before I switched to XSI.
I kind of skimmed through it, but here's a decent tutorial on modeling: http://forums.filefront.com/sw-jk3-modding-editing/341153-almighty-girs-player-modelling-tutorial.html Warning! Contains drawings of nudes!! lol!
Also here is a tutorial on how to bring vehicles ingame: Vehicle Importing Tutorial for JA Courtesy of Inyriforges tutorial sticky, right above the new threads <.<
Why don't I tell you myself, you say? Because retarded gmax hasn't even applied the setup right so I'm stuck with doing maps for now!
